TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe is no longer fresh-faced, but it remains one of the best bets for those needing tough, true truck capability and plenty of passenger space. If you're one of the few SUV fans left standing in the full-size arena, the 2012 Ford Expedition offers truck toughness in a well-rounded, well-featured SUV package. The 2012 Toyota Sequoia delivers traditional truck toughness, towing ability, and strong V-8 engines—plus the macho look to go with it.
